Theresa is a wonderful teacher. I am a beginning cello student but with 12 years of upright bass experience, and she tailors our lessons to match my classical knowledge and play style with the basics required transitioning to a new instrument. She has an incredible depth of knowledge and communicates it in a way that is easily understood and and applied, regardless of whether it's bow technique, musical phrasing, or historical in nature. It has made learning a new instrument a great joy - thanks, Theresa!

Students can expect to learn in a setting that’s both challenging but understanding. I stick to standard etude books for establishing fundamentals but also encourage students to voice what they’d like to play or learn.

Ready to uncover the expressive singing voice you know you have? I’ve been helping students discover joyful singing for 20 years. Lessons are tailor-made to the needs of the individual student with a focus on vocal health and proper production. You will learn how to warm-up your voice with exercises geared towards building the instrument, breath support, and tension release. We will work on repertoire with specific techniques for learning and developing a song. For students that are ready or interested, we will work on applications such as working with an accompanist or band, creating arrangements and presentation. Beginners to professionals are welcome. Let’s get started!

About Cathy

Are you ready to express yourself through the gift of song? In my 20+ years of teaching, I have learned that people choose to sing for all kinds of reasons but the number one reason is that they JUST HAVE TO! I have had the pleasure and honor to accompany many singers, from beginner to professional

Cathy is the best teacher I had! She really knows how to get to understand and develop your unique individual voice. Her method is built on vocal health. She understands a lot about different styles and that gives you versatility as a singer.
I am a profesional touring singer now, I had several teachers and I can asure you that Cathy is the one that gave me all the best tools for my voice. I get a lot of compliments about the placement of my voice and how it is very nice and healthy, my answer always is "Cathy Elliot made it"!
I not only recommend Cathy as your vocal teacher, I actually thing is a blessing to have her.
Chrizsean
Very passionate teacher, highly recommended!
ALICIA
My experience with Cathy for vocal training had been nothing but educational and fun. I’ve learned so much about using the voice properly and for longevity, which is my goal. And tho some of the classes can dive deep there is always a lightness and compassion to them. I highly recommend checking her out if you’re looking to improve upon your total vocal production while having fun exploring techniques you may have never heard of.

"Elisa is a great teacher

Elisa taught my daughter viola for almost two years before she moved West. My daughter start viola when she was six. Elisa was very good with a young novice player - She explained musical concepts at an age appropriate level (but never dumbed things down). We were also pleased that she had high standards in her weekly expectations but always kept things fun and loose so as not to cause stress. Had she not moved we would still be employing her. Elisa is a great teacher."

"Great first session

Gabriel was great! The introduction session was the best we have ever had, not our 1st time at this. I was impressed w/ how he coved the basics experience, warm ups, ability to carry a note & what her/our goal was. Also, I was very impressed by his concern for my daughter to discover her own abilities / capabilities. He was genuine & told us what is necessary to improve to a higher level, not always easy, but he is very experienced & she is excited to be his student!
In a word - Gabriel is SUPER!"

How Long Does it Take to Learn Violin?

  Wouldn’t it be great to learn to play an instrument in minutes? Think of the musical repertoire you would have! Unfortunately, like many different skill sets, that simply isn’t the case. Learning to play an instrument, as with driving and hitting a great shot on the golf course, is all about practice. The more you practice, the faster you learn, and the better you play. And the violin, a wooden chordophone with a beautiful soprano sound, takes time to learn, just like any other ins …
